Hapag-Lloyd Cruises has carried out 3 weeks of improvements on board Hanseatic. The ship’s two stabilisers were completely overhauled and converted to environmentally friendly technology, now running on biopetroleum. Additionally, the ship’s two main engines have undergone a complete overhaul.
Around 240 large nature and animal photographs by the Hamburg-based star photographer Michael Poliza will lend more of an air of expedition to the ship. The famous photographer took the photos on his travels, and his works include motifs from the Arctic, Antarctic and Africa. Guests on board can also marvel at a selection of spectacular aerial shots, such as of Kamchatka.
A range of minor work was also carried out during the docking period, including replacing carpets, renovating the consultation area of the cruise sales department and modernizing the presentation walls of the on-board photographer with modern screens.
On 21 October the Hanseatic will set off on a two-week cruise from Bremerhaven to Tenerife. On the way it will call at ports including Portsmouth, La Coruna, Leixoes, Lisbon, Portimao, Cadiz, Casablanca, Arrecife/Lanzarote, Santa Cruz/La Palma and San Sebastian/La Gomera.
